I'd personally recommend using the Dpad to play fighters instead of the stick, lol makes life much easier IMO. But that might come down to preference, I just know I've never enjoyed trying to use the stick for fighters... never ends well for me.

hold on, you mean it's possible to use the d pad for specials and supers? Gotta figure that out.

Hi,
You can use the d-pad, you still have to do quarter circle style motions, but if you've been able to use the pad for games like Skullgirls, Killer Instinct, Street Fighter or MVC, you'll be fine with this. It's different from mk where you tap down and then lef, you do still have to do more of a motion. It's a bit hard to explain.

I still need to unlock android 21 myself, but when I do the story mode I wanna complete it fully. lol

Yeah it's not that hard to complete, you just need someone to take you to the squares in the board game. I completed it with the help of my 7 year old brother, and judging by what I sau on youtube, I didn't miss anything. The only char you unlock from story is 21, ss blue vegeta and goku are on the arcade if you didn't order the game that is. BTW, if you get goku and vegeta to lvl 40 in story mode you'll be able to play as them in that mode, also fight intro seens and character interactions differ depending on what chars you have on a team and who they are going up against. I tryed changing my chars often to get most of the seens unlocked. Link events are really hard to unlock though, as you get them every ten levels. Those are seens where you get to talk to your character.

Greetings.

Yeah, I got the preorder bonus so all I have to unlock 21. I've read that the AI in story mode is really really easy, so it's more of a grindfest than anything else.

I got goku blue, vegeta blue, and android 21 from the start. I bought the game on day one with the season pass at a game store. The game is great, it's the first game that got me fully into it, so much so that I learned jump cancelling and all the crazy shit combos, follow ups and the rest. When I play other fighting games, I just do basic stuff and don't really go as deep as for this one.

So I'm writing this up just because I can, lol also in case I'm not the last person to actually figure this out, and for future player benefit.
While I was bored today, I decided to mess around with the dragon ball mechanic to see how to pick what wish. As it turns out, not complex. 4 wishes, 4 directions on the pad.
Up: active character heal.
Right: Ultimate power, aka second sparking blast.
Down: Blue health heal for entire team.
Left: Revive.
The selection does not change if you press multiple times, so feel free to just mash the button once the animation starts, press X as soon as you hear the selection sound of whichever wish you want.
Probably not a thing that gets used often in real matches, but hey, now it's here. tongue

In most menus you can hold a direction and the cursor will stop moving at a menu boundary. If you press or hold in the same direction you will wrap to the other end of the menu.

I don't think I've unlocked all of them but I've listed the stages I've unlocked. These work for the training mode (pause menu) and team editor stage selection. No I don't know why the ordering for some makes no sense.
Stages (left to right):
Planet Namek
Space
World Tournament Arena
Planet Namek (Destroyed)
Rocky Field (Evening)
Rocky Field (Noon)
Cell Games Arena
Wasteland
West City
West City (Destroyed)
Cavern
Islands
Land of the Kai's

Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

So first two DLC characters confirmed, Broly and Bardock. Thoughts?
Could be fun I guess, never did watch the movies myself though. I just hope we get at least 1 or 2 more female fighters in here... lol granted, dragon ball as a whole hasn't really had too many female fighters, but in a tag game with 24, now 26 characters it's a little sad IMO that you can't even form a complete team, androids 18 and 21 only so far. Although some people on gamefaqs have mentioned Kefla/Caulifla/Kale or some combination, had to actually look them up because I haven't watched super yet, but considering according to DB wiki Kefla actually kept up with SSG Goku, hopefully she'll get in eventually.
